Food Hack: Un-Bread Your Sandwiches

Have you ever tried to Un-Bread Your Sandwiches?

I have recently been trying out Baxters fabulous new range of deli toppers and have so far showcased my Quesedillas with red slaw topping and my potato and egg scramble with jalapenos deli toppers.

Have you guessed yet I am a lover of carbs and all things bread-y.

I am aware though that many people really don’t always like to cook without bread due to health concerns  or as apart of a weigh loss plan or just because they like to ring in the changes. If that applies to you then here are some great options for wrapping your fillings but avoiding bread.

Un-Bread Your Sandwiches


Lettuce leaves with couscous, feta and Baxters deli toppers red slaw.

Lettuce leaves are just so easy to fill then scoop up by the hand and eat. You don’t need butter, they are light and super healthy and great sandwich option!


Another thing you could use to un-bread your sandwiches is cabbage leaves

Red cabbage leaves with Baxters red onion deli topper, radish, mozzarella red apple and tomato



or how about simple but scrumptious and gluten free

Oat cakes with cream cheese and chive, plum tomatos and tiny dash of jalapenos.



You could use rice paper, seaweed, vine leaves, quorn slices, potato skins or even spinach leaves to wrap your sandwiches and the colour and the variety make them an exciting alternative to bread.

I think we should all #Get topping!

    Bread is my downfall! Naan, Pitta, Bagel, etc. I can’t help myself…So this is perfect for giving me a nudge to say there are other options out there. They look fab too. Must check out Baxters Deli Toppers (Love their French onion soup!!)

    I try and eat gluten free where I can and hadn’t thought of some of these options, just fab ideas and I love the idea of lettuce instead of bread. Will definitely give it a try and the red onion deli toppers sounds delish!

    As someone who can’t eat wheat, I limit my bread intake purely because gluten free bread is SO expensive and more of a luxury item for me these days due to a tight budget. I also can’t eat raw veg and lettuce (sob, I used to love salads but they no longer love me!) but I do find alternative ways around it, including oatcakes like you suggest 🙂 I also make “lettuce free salads” of lightly steamed or sautéed veggies, and I’m sure the toppers would make a great edition to those!

    I’m trying to step away from the usual sandwich options at lunchtime and these are such fab alternatives. I love the lettuce leaf idea, will definitely be checking out the deli toppers too!

    Mmmm… I really like the look of the lettuce leaf option. I actually bought some today so I shall have a go! Great tips.

    Some fab ideas here Becky. I try to avoid gluten because I’m sure it plays a role in my rosacea; lettuce leaves are a great alternative to bread. Not quite as filly, but utterly delicious! Loving what you have done here…now, where’s my shopping list!
